In a city where 'burger' seems to be the word on every hungry
diner's lips, the four-star Macdonald Manchester
Hotel & Spa aims to celebrate British Food Fortnight with
the creation of the ultimate 'Manchester Burger' to tantalise the
tastebuds of the city.
The 'Manchester Burger' aims to truly represent the area
through a mouth-watering combination of local ingredients that will
complement the hotels' Scottish Steak Club restaurant's finest
prime beef patties and give Mancunians a taste of tradition.
Featuring a home made 'Boddingtons sauce' with hints of crumbled
famous Bury black pudding, the burger aims to encapsulate the
flavours of Manchester's brewing history. Complementing the
'Boddies' tang will be Britain's oldest known Cheshire cheese, said
to have acquired its crumbly, nutty flavour from the area's salt
marshes. Sandwiched inside a specially made brioche bun.
The delicious creation will be a limited edition on the Scottish
Steak Club menu at Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa, available
for two weeks only during British Food Fortnight.
Hotel & Spa benefits from a uniquely renovated first floor
Scottish Steak Club restaurant with stunning views across the city.
The open-plan live kitchen allows guests to watch the chefs in
action and relax in the new surroundings.
The restaurant has also installed an aging fridge for guests to
view the quality steaks on offer, as the finest cuts of Scottish,
US and Argentinian beef complete the aging process for up to 35
days in the restaurant, making them more tender.
Paul Bayliss MBE, general manager at Macdonald Manchester
Hotel & Spa, is the chair of The Manchester Hotelier's
Association. He said: "Burgers have become incredibly popular in
the Manchester area, so what better way to celebrate British Food
Fortnight than to get involved and create the ultimate 'Manchester
Burger' that offers our guests a unique twist with a combination of
remarkable local flavours?
"Manchester is famous for its breweries and there's no better
way to capture this tradition than with a Boddingtons kick for the
burger sauce. We've mixed the subtlety of ale flavours with hints
of Bury's famous black pudding to create a rich topping, while the
crumbly texture of the Cheshire cheese complements our prime beef
"We pride ourselves on offering our guests only the highest
quality food in one of Manchester's best restaurants and the
'Manchester Burger' will be a mouth-watering addition to our menu
for British Food Fortnight."
